B61: Parallel Treecut-Manipulation for Interactive Level of Detail Selection

Schiffner,D., Krömker,D.

We present a dynamic system that allows to alter the Level of Detail (LOD) of a treecut-based object. The adaptation and selection is made in a parallel process which avoids stalling or locks because of expensive calculations and LOD changes. A signal system is used to control the exchange between the independent threads. Due to the separation of the LOD-selection and the rendering, different strategies for selection are applicable.
